The properties of hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) including quiescence, proliferation and differentiation are maintained by both intrinsic programs from HSCs and extrinsic signals from the bone marrow micro-environment, also known as the HSC niche. In this dissertation, we aim to provide answers to the following research questions: what are the molecular events underlying the HSC niche-driven clonal transformation of hematopoiesis, and what is the relevance of these molecular events to human diseases?
